CeraMicro selects RFaxis RFeICs for Zigbee, WLAN modules

rfaxisproductsIrvine, Calif. — RFaxis, a startup fabless semiconductor company, will supply its RF front-end ICs (RFeICs) for integration into CeraMicro Technology’s system-in-package (SiP) solutions for Zigbee and WLAN.

CeraMicro has designed the RFaxis RFX2401 and RFX2402 RFeICs into its eZigbee and SiP RF modules, respectively. RFaxis’ single-chip, single-die, RFeICs are aimed at replacing conventional larger, multi-die front-end modules.

CeraMicro offers Zigbee, WLAN, and Bluetooth SiPs and RF modules that are used in a variety of applications including asset management, energy management, monitoring & sensoring, lighting, security, HVAC, home care, utility metering, thermostats, consumer electronics, remote controls, PC peripherals, and audio devices. These RF SiP solutions are used in Wi-Fi 802.11n/a/b/g modules and Bluetooth modules

Volume production of CeraMicro’s SiPs and RF modules using RFaxis’ RFeICs will start in the first quarter of 2010.
